[quote][b]NOTE:[/b] I'd like to credit both SEAL Sniper 9 and Mark V guy for putting this idea in my head.[/quote] In ODST, my favourite game of the series, there is an abundance of Sangheili corpses scattered around New Mombasa. This itself tells us that there's an untold story, as the Changing of the Guard event hasn't happened yet but the Brutes have massacred Regret's Elites still on Earth. I think that this would be a very good opportunity for a DLC side story (and yes, I'm under no delusions, I know this WON'T happen). [quote][/quote] So basically you're the Rookie walking around the hub world of New Mombasa, in the main storyline you find clues about your squadmates which provide flashbacks about their story. What if they did the same thing but instead of flashing back to your fellow ODSTs, you flash back to a squad of Elites and lead up to their execution by the Brutes when they arrive? This would encompass 5 missions: [quote][B]MISSION 1 - Tallus 'Alrikee, 20 minutes before drop[/B] You are the head of the remaining Sangheili forces pulling back to Regret's landing zone (the landing pad you see in Uplift Reserve), however you fail to make it in time as Regret bugs out and heads to Installation 05. [B]MISSION 2 - Tallus 'Alrikee, 10 minutes after drop[/B] You're awakened by what's left of your squad, 4 other Elites. They inform you that Regret has abandoned them and you're now stuck on this hostile world where EVERYONE is against you. You establish radio contact with another group of Elites and your objective is to regroup with them, forcing you into an agressive engagement of urban warfare with surviving Marines/ODSTs. The mission ends with the discovery of the Elites at Tayari plaza under a wall where the word "BELIEVE" is graffitied, all of them slaughtered and the Orbital Elevator collapses (symbolising the 'downfall' of the Sangheili). [B]MISSION 3 - Tallus 'Alrikee, 1 hour after drop[/B] You examine the corpses of the dead Elites and discover that they've got wounds from plasma weapons, the immediate assumption is that humans have been using their weapons but rounding a corner you come across another dying Elite who informs you that the Brutes have betrayed them and have gone off to storm the human ONI building but are also looking for something underground. The Elite stands no chance of recovery and asks to be euthenased. In this mission, your squad plans to track down these Brutes and kill them, restoring their leadership over the scattered Covenant forces. To do this, you push back to the Scarab that the Chief disabled in Metropolis [HALO 2] and drive it to the Alpha Site. The mission ends with their arrival at ONI Alpha Site and discovering that they're too late, the bridge has been destroyed and they witness the building's detonation as a Pelican flies off in the distance (obviously linking in with the end of the ONI Alpha Site mission). [B]MISSION 4 - Tallus 'Alrikee, 2 hours after drop[/B] Determined to avenge your fallen brothers, you resort to making direct radio contact with the regrouping Brutes and feign ignorance in regard to the murder of the other Elites. The Brutes think they have the upper hand and you plan a meeting point at the top of one of the buildings, you fight your way through Kizingo Boulevard in the Scarab experiencing an all-out vehicular battle between humanity and the Covenant along the way and eventually reach the specified building. [B]MISSION 5 - Tallus 'Alrikee, 3 hours after drop[/B] In this mission, you begin the ascent up 9 floors (referencing the story of Dante's Inferno which ODST's story structure is based off). Once you reach the top, a 'survival' style fight begins. Eventually, the Brutes arrive and out steps the Chieftain, he never expected your squad to make it this far and decides that it's best for him to personally intervene. He's flanked by over a dozen packmates - the perfect ambush. During the conflict (which occurs through a cutscene, akin to 'Monsters' from halo Wars) you are eventually overwhelmed and knocked down in the struggle, and witness your fellow Elites fall in front of you too. A Brute then walks up to you and kicks you in the face, and your vision goes blurry. The Brute laughs, and then asks the Chieftain whether or not you should be taken prisoner. The Chieftain then says that they have orders from the Prophets to annihilate the Elites and he wants Tallus's mandibles as a trophy. Upon hearing this, Tallus bursts into a frenzy (Amon Hen - Boromir style, baby!) and manages to cut several down, but is shot down by the overwhelming number of Brutes, but not before you injure the Chieftain. The Chieftain receives a transmission from a Phantom telling him that they've tracked and engaged a squad of ODSTs at one of the skyscrapers (Buck's squad) and requests assistance. He takes a Spiker from one of his packmates, aims it at you and fires. The screen goes black.[/quote] In the end, when roaming the streets of New Mombasa, each pile of Elite corpses has an Energy Sword with unlimited energy for you to use as a reward (similar to Halo 2 multiplayer). To anyone who bothered to read this far, well done. This isn't anything particularly deep or detailed, but with work I can see this working beautifully juxtaposed with the main story of ODST and, to an extent, Halo 2 (as I tried to show with things like the locations, the Scarab and the Chieftain being the same one Buck's squad kills at the end of NMPD HQ). Hope you enjoyed.
